header draaft Littlehampton Plan institute

 

Mount Barker District Council has developed a draft Littlehampton and Blakiston Neighbourhood Plan to establish a program of local improvements, guide future development and infrastructure, and protect the things that the community values.

The draft neighbourhood plan seeks to:

  • support and promote the area's strengths as a highly attractive and livable village and rural living area
  • progressively improve walkability and accessibility to transport infrastructure
  • improve the public realm, streetscape and public places
  • strengthen the connection between people and the places they share 
  • enhance opportunities for a vibrant and inclusive community life
  • improve housing choice to accommodate people at all stages of life, and 
  • provide opportunities for business and services to meet current and future needs of the area.

It includes concept plans for improving the North Terrace streetscape and the future of Council owned land known as the ‘Glebe land’. Council has identified its priorities in three Planning Themes, which together will achieve the Vision for the area.

 

Background

Council listened to the community in 2015 about what they want for the Littlehampton and Blakiston area. More than 500 community members got involved with the public consultation to inform this Plan. The findings of the consultation have been incorporated into the draft neighbourhood plan.
